Veneers Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you look at magazines and wish you had those perfect white teeth? Sometimes it can be as simple as covering the front of your teeth with veneers.

Veneers are custom-made tooth-colored materials made of porcelain or composite resin designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size or length. What Type of Problems Do Porcelain Veneers Correct? Teeth that are discolored — either because of root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth Teeth that are worn down Teeth that are chipped or broken Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped Teeth with gaps between them.

Porcelain veneers are stronger and more durable than composite resin veneers and last 10 to 15 years, while composite resin veneers last between five and seven years. Porcelain veneers also resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Composite resin veneers are great alternative to porcelain as they preserve tooth structure, they are immediate, and are cost effective.
